When people argue that the Right is simply better funded on the activist/think tank side, I think they have in mind the ability to throw $10K at what constitutes the college right blogging these days. I do like the idea that the runner-ups get to run Iraq, with 2nd place getting to setup the stock market and 3rd the traffic systems.
